Shredded Chicken Recipe

I have fallen in love with my Crockpot. I had really not used it very often until I had Harper and found juggling 2 kids and trying to make dinner was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I have a yummy recipe to share with you for Shredded Chicken that I think you will love, especially on busy days!

You will need:
3 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cube of chicken bouillon (I use Better than Bouillon in Chicken Flavor)
2 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
1 jar of chicken gravy (don't use an envelope of dry gravy mix- it will lump up!)
2 cups of water (more if needed to cover the chicken)

Cook your chicken in 2 cups of water and a bouillon cube for about 8 hours on low.

When your chicken is cooked use a fork and a kinfe to shred it (use a thermometer for food safety) reduce the amount of water in the crockpot by half.

Add the chicken gravy and cream of chicken soup. Allow to cook for one more hour.

You can serve this on buns for sandwiches or you can serve it over mashed potatoes. My family likes it both ways, this recipe makes enough that we usually have it both ways and I am thrilled to have 2 if not 3 easy meals to serve.
